J. Digital and Nic TVG bring the first collaborative release between Pinecone Moonshine and Digibeat Music. Both labels specialize in break driven Drum and Bass and Drum Funk.

|[PCMS005] dgoHn :: Ibunshi :: Fushara :: Fada -> The Painting Space - dgoHn, Ibunshi, Fushara, Fada|
dgoHn starts The Painting Space with distant, melodic pads that follow along the high-energy Tighten Up break. Creative change ups and a loud sub make this track always feel like it is moving forward. [www.myspace.com/dgohn] Ibunshi uses intricate details and techy sounds to pull the listener inside this track.

|[PCMS004] TVG Hates TVG - She Has Nicotine EP - TVG Hates TVG|
The title track starts the album with a desperate tone using idm influenced effects to drop into choppy, rolling drums and a heavy sub.

Sanity & Soundness Fanu :: dgoHn :: Ibunshi :: Indidjinous :: Macc The only instructions were: make a piece of Drum & Bass inspired from a free jazz piece. Opening with the sparse plucking of double bass, Fanu builds up to a fast pace, funky track that steps up the intensity even more with a massive bass line. dgoHn takes Drum Funk to another realm with an improvised sound that feels effortless but contains countless layers and details...

|[PCMS006a] One Year Anniversary Remix EP|
Formication :: Fracture :: Indidjinous :: Takeshi Nakamura :: Sub Pinecone Moonshine's anniversary release ranges from an acoustic guitar transformed into a harrowing noise assault by Formication to deep, atmospheric drum and bass by Fracture and Indidjinous to alien robot dance music from Takeshi Nakamura to a melodic piece by Sub using minimal synthetic drums.
